Sunday Sevens Week #45 (Me 1!)

For a while now I’ve been really enjoying other blogger’s Sunday Sevens, giving little snippets of their life beyond the craft room and adding just enough colour about them without subtracting from the core of what their blog is about. As I enjoy them so much, I thought it high time I joined in and share my snippets.


Sunday Sevens is the brainchild of Natalie at Thread and Bobbins. Check it out here, if you’d like to share your snippets too. Anyways, here’s my first Sunday Seven…

1. Been for two walks this week with my lovely friend Julie. This is her dog Morgan – I swear she’s trained him to shake over me every time he wallows in mud.


2. . The foals on the moor are now so friendly they come and take food from your hand.


3. Wednesday I went to The Natural Fibre Company open day. More about that in a full post soon.


4. As if my trip to The Natural Fibre Company hadn’t been exciting enough, it was my turn to be quiz mistress at my local on Wednesday evening.

5. Lots of butterflies in the wood. Not sure what these two are. Are there any lepidopterists out there that can tell me?


6. Despite my focus on getting things straight now being on the house, I still spent several hours gardening in the sunshine.


7. Gave Mr Hicks a trim – if he gets any hairier I’ll be able to start spinning my own golden retriever yarn.

Hope you’ve had a great week.

  1. Welcome to the club! I had our Border Collie fur spun (over twenty years ago now) but can’t remember what, if anything, I made with it. Your local looks nice – I love our pubs and realise how lucky we are in the UK to have such a unique concept that we too often take for granted.

  2. What a great challenge and what great responses from you – a super variety of snippets. You’ve got me wondering what golden retriever yarn would look like now. 😀 I’ll look forward to your post about the Natural Fibre Company.

    1. It is a lovely challenge and I really enjoy reading other people’s Sunday Sevens. Am wondering about the golden retriever yarn myself, but I’m not going to be drawn into that particular challenge 🙂

      1. Glad you enjoyed them. The point of starting the blog was largely about seeing where it went and what I discovered. As you’ll have noticed it seems to have largely connected me to my love of yarn – not that I don’t still love and want to post about writing and sewing and embroidery and other creative things but it’s the yarn that’s really calling. So no ff at the moment. I do enjoy reading people’s ff, but I also don’t want to get into a whole circuit of commenting on a whole heap of people’s writing. Too many years in crit groups I think.

      2. I like reading people’s stories, but I just haven’t got the time. I just do the one at the moment, FFfAW, but that may have to stop soon. I love your posts about yarn and so on, so I’ll be happy to keep reading those. I haven’t looked at my Reader yet today, so I’ll look at your Monday post later on. 🙂

      3. Yes, FF takes so much loner to write than is proportionate to the length of the story – a bit like sock knitting 😉 Glad you like the other posts. No Monday post today from me. Leaving it for tomorrow so I don’t inundate people.

      4. Oh, thanks for letting me know. 🙂 I always expect a ‘knitting-type’ post from you on a Monday. I ‘m the same – my WOW posts are getting later because of other things I ‘ve been putting up at weekend. Till tomorrow then …

  3. That’s a lovely butterfly picture! I think you must have much more patience than I–or maybe just a longer lens. 😉

    And the foals on the moor! It looks beautiful there–I do so enjoy the Sunday Sevens pictures from the UK, as it’s such a different landscape than we have here in dry eastern Washington state.

    1. Hello. Thanks for visiting. I agree, it’s great to see all the different landscapes – even in a small country like the UK we are so varied.

      As for the butterflies, I just got lucky – they’re taken with my phone and, believe it or not, we had three lively dogs with us!
